Lyttonsville is the eastern end of the Georgetown Branch Trail, where the future Capital Crescent Trail extension will go. But the plan goes farther than that as seen on the bikeway map below. Rocke Creek Park Trail and Ireland Drive Trail are in the area as well as the Eas-West Highway Side Path and several bike routes.
The Montgomery County Planning Department, part of The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, is inviting anyone who lives, works or has an interest in the Greater Lyttonsville community to participate in a community visioning workshop on Monday, Sept. 29 starting at 5 p.m. at the Planning Department Headquarters (8787 Georgia Ave. Silver Spring, MD ). The event will provide attendees an opportunity to share their vision on how the Greater Lyttonsville area can be improved over the next twenty years. RSVP's are encouraged but not required.
Building on the success of the last community meeting held in July, and a series of outreach events that reached out to the business community and families, the Greater Lyttonsville team has scheduled this second workshop to further encourage the community to help define the vision for the sector plan area.
The workshop, which will be held from 5:00 to 8:30 p.m., will have an open house format, with the presentation being given at 5:30 p.m., 6:30 p.m., and 7:30 pm. At each one, Staff will present the planning process, recent feedback that has been provided regarding constraints and opportunities, as well as next steps. The workshop will also include an interactive exercise to explore community character as it relates to open spaces, streetscapes, environmental elements, land uses, buildings, and community facilities.
The Planning Board will receive a briefing at their regular meeting on Oct. 16 that will summarize the outcomes of theSept. 29 workshop. All are invited to attend. The summary will also be available on the Planning Board website online one week before the Planning Board briefing.
